Warning God-Deniers of Hell is a ‘Hate Crime’? (Audio Report)

Which is more hateful? Warning people about a place called hell? Or remaining silent while they go there?

The poster displayed at Attleborough Baptist Church in Norfolk read: “If you think there is no God, you better be right,” with a picture of burning flames below the words.   A 20-year old who saw it was offended, so he called the police.

If he thinks the poster was offensive, imagine how “offended” he would be at hell.

The police recorded the matter as a “hate incident,” and the poster was removed. In Matthew 23, Jesus asked the Pharisees, ‘How can you escape the condemnation of hell?” Jesus also told us the answer. In John 14:6 when Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
